Even though I started with black cs I used a stencil and clear gesso to get the butterflies shiny. Then added watered down white gesso with dry brush to add texture and the sense of night time. Laid the stencil back down and stamped flowers with versa mark and heat set gold embossing powder to bring color and life to the butterflies. Added strip of stamped sentiment in black on white cs. Mounted on white cs base.
